The Silken Same
“If we’re talking about being firmly rooted between the traditional and the modern, then no-one embodies that more perfectly …. sparkles with vigour” – Nialler9
The Silken Same are Galway duo Mossy Nolan and Colm McGowan. Already known in their native Ireland, and having supported a formidable roll call of artists such This is the Kit, LAU, Luka Bloom, Seamus Fogarty, Pictish Trail, RM Hubbert, and Cass McCombs, they are making their UK debut in 2018.
Theirs is a sound that artfully combines the bygone and the new, drawing on Irish and Balkan influences; songs that on the face of it will seem instantly familiar, but that supplant the traditional with fresh melodic and conceptual ideas.
